“While on tour a few years ago the number 438 was always surrounding me whether hotel room, time, something about the number was always appearing. One day I decided to look it up and learned 438 is an angelic number.
A number full of positive meaning, prosperity and optimism. It was just life changing experience so I just decided to name the album that ” said Masicka.
“We are excited to be apart of the release of Masicka’s debut album ‘438’. The album is a great body of work and we know fans and dancehall enthusiasts will enjoy” says Martin Price, Director of A & R (North America & Africa) at ONErpm.
